COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - Winter and Spring.
Smooth and satisfying, this example of an historic style of beer derives its rich, chocolatey character from a blend of Brown and Chocolate malts in the brew. Its notable coffee notes and creamy finish make it a wonderful accompaniment to many sweet foods Ė especially chocolate pudding. 5.4% ABV.

NOTE: Most Fullerís beer in the US is served by handpump kegs and not a cask. Ask your server.

HogTownHarry (6130) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
August 27, 2011 - at Volo. And yes, it really IS cask, not keg handpump. Clear but very dark ruby-black with a smallish lasting frothy tan head. Smells nice dry herbal/floral medium chocolate roast, a little treacle and a hint of acidity - very mellow, very appealing (8-). Taste is more like a mild - lighter roast, a little syrupy, no alcohol at all, quite softly grainy, with hints of peat and, oddly, salt. Light-bodied and thin, not much carbonation, sticky/slick and quick-finishing, leaves a dry earthy molasses aftertaste - very nice for all that!

Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2012
Off cask at the derby beer fest. Tasty, nice chocolate and a small amount of coffee. Ace.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - JUL 12, 2012
Un poí sporca al naso, caffŤ e un aroma sanguigno-metallico poco attraente. Di facile beva ma non acquosa, Ť questo il suo maggior pregio.

Pours very dark with a little reddish tinge. Thick off white head. Smells of roasted malt and chocolate. Hint of coffee and caramel in the taste, sweet chocolate and roasted malts being very prominent. Goes down very quickly, fantastic beer.

Cask at the Fullers pub in Birmingham. Dark brown pour with an off white head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Coffee, caramel, chocolate and roasted malt in the flavour. So easily drinkable and tasty!

A powerful traditional smelling aroma, with an amazing thickened head. This beer is a knockout in a foggy back alley. A thinner body than the appearance would indicate but full of chocolate coffee and vanilla notes.
